Buses

Regular Metro Red Bus services connect the airport to the city centre and many other
locations in Christchurch. Both the Purple Line and the Number 29 buses go via the city centre. You can buy your tickets from the driver. Tickets cost $8.50 one way or $15 return. Both buses depart from the northern end of the International Arrivals Hall, between the terminal and the long-term car park (exit through door 9 past the Vodafone counter).
